[GRASS5] ps.map: colortable width inconsistency

The width parameter in colortable blocks in ps.map means different 
things for categorical and continuous tables.  For categorical tables it 
refers to the width of the entire table (coloured box + text) while in 
the continuous table it refers to the width of the coloured box only.

Since the size of the box in the categorical tables is controlled by the 
font size the only practical consistent usage would be if both were used 
to mean the entire width.

Perhaps the width of the box in the continuous tables could be set to 
1/10 of the total width?  Any comments?  We have been trying out 
modifications along these lines and could submit changes if people don't 
see a problem.
